iMain - A Novel Decision Support System for Intelligent Maintenance in Forming Presses


iMain project was an FP7 project supported by EU with 3 433 448 Euro funding (ID 314304). The project had a duration of 36 months and has started on 1st of September 2012. For the success of the project 8 partners from 4 European countries worked together.

Our objective was to develop a novel and advanced concept with a practical verified solution for an information-based predictive maintenance system which will include:

  • An embedded condition & energy monitoring system, which will nearly operate personal self-sufficient
  • A smart service life prediction system, that will complement the ECEM system through a number of virtual sensors
  • A novel e-maintenance strategy using cloud e-maintenance
